My clinic

TLC Natural Health Works was established in 2002 and is based in Melbourne Australia. A calm and peaceful space - it allows you to retreat from the hectic pace of life (even if only momentarily) and focus on what is really important – you and your family!


My vision

With the increasingly alarming rates of childhood anxiety, depression, self-harming and teen suicide, together with widespread family stress, conflict and breakdown, it has become my mission to reach and support as many families (individuals, couples and kids) as I can.

Drawing on years of education, training, work and personal life experience (plenty of my own very challenging times), I want to share with parents powerful strategies and processes that can help their kids overcome challenges. My ultimate vision is to empower all my clients to create the changes they desire and find a balance that's right for them so they can enjoy their best life.

I’m so excited that one positive to come out of COVID lockdown, is that geographical distance is no longer a barrier. All my services, programs and workshops are now available worldwide, via Zoom.

My loves and passions

Confession - I think I might love my dogs as much as I love my kids (almost!) I adore my family - they are beautiful humans, such great company and a huge part of the joy I experience in my life. It’s not always been ‘colourful’ though and I’m so grateful for the endless support they’ve given me in difficult times and for teaching me so much, especially about unconditional love and the impact that addressing my needs and being happy has on them!

Being out in nature is my happy place. Simple pleasures like walking barefoot on the grass or on warm sand, swimming in the ocean and basking in the sun, all fill me up!

I love photography - taking fun images and capturing beautiful moments– which of course my teenagers love! (Well, I’m sure they will one day!)

Helping people break unwanted patterns to make desirable change (relatively quickly), is my absolute passion! Kids mirror what we say and do. Our energy too! Happier parents. Happier kids. I love that everyone benefits from the ripple effect of parent education and support in families.
